Analysis / Bias
In review, the Cape Cod Times covers local news through the use of reporters and journalists with minimal bias in wording and story selection. National and international news is covered through the least biased Associated Press. All information is properly sourced to credible media outlets or verifiable information. Editorially, there is a slight left leaning bias favoring issues of the left, though mostly balanced with both points of view represented. A factual search reveals some controversy regarding a journalist who did not properly list sources, but there isn’t evidence of any failed fact checks.
Overall, we rate the Cape Cod Times Least Biased based on story selection that is balanced with a slight left leaning editorial page. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 7/3/2018)
